My name is Susan Gallagher, maiden name Gorrell.My father was Robert Ellis Gorrell Jr., son Robert Ellis Gorrell Sr. My brother is Robert Ellis Gorrell III.
My grandmother and my aunt are both named Lillian.My grandmother passed in 1981 and my aunt resides in Arizon, but we all grew up in Charlestown, MA.My father's siblings were: Donald, John, Lillian and William.Sad to say Donald, John and Billy have passed on.
I remember my father had a cousin named Marlene and she had a sister named Moyra (hope I spelled that right :o)) and their father I believe was Sam was born around 1910 or so.
I have spent the past 4 days on ancestry.com (my neice has an assignment on her family tree that is due soon.)I also have not gone any further than Sam and Johanna. (Very frustrating !!!!!)
As far as Hattie goes, I really feel for her.Looks like she had some tough times.I noticed that in the 1930 census she had a boarder living with her by the name of Peter F. Miller.I searched for a Hattie Miller and found one that was a pupil in an institute in Nova Scotia.I'm wondering if our Hattie was a Miller, got married to a hayman, lost a baby and then married Robert W. ??? Seems far fetched, but on the 1910 or 1920 census it lists her as having had 2 children with only one living.
Must have too much time on my hands to be doing all this detective work.
